MTV has “confirmed” on Thursday that Whitney Port will be getting her own Hills spin-off that takes place in New York City.
Nevermind the obvious fact that she’s been in New York at a new job with a camera crew following her around for the past month, never-mind the fact that all of her cast mates have confirmed this to be true already, but it was not official until MTV announced it today.
In a statement released MTV confirms the series to be called The City, and its scheduled to air in early 2009.
MTV is promising new faces, new friends, and new romance as they follow Whitney through her first days at her new job working at the offices of fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg. Whitney ha released the following statement as well:
“I am thrilled and honored to be in New York City,” Port (pictured right in New York’s Central Park) says in a statement. “Not only working for one of the most renowned fashion designers, Diane Von Furstenberg, but to be able to mature as a young woman both professionally and personally.”
She was always sort of the wet blanket on The Hills, can she come out of her shell and keep the people interested? MTV reality has yet to move across country like this yet, so that will be interesting as well escaping the repetitive southern California types.
